In need of every cent it can muster, the Durban-based Umduduzi Hospice Care for Children this year alone have taken 255 new children under its wing.

Co-founder of the children’s hospice, Tracey Brand said the NGO relies solely on outside support in providing palliative care and that they were affiliated with both state and private hospitals throughout KwaZulu-Natal.

Tickets bought allowed buyers to wear hats in support of the International Children’s Palliative Care Network, of which Umduduzi forms part of. Netcare Alberlito matron, Naomi Hoffman said they were happy to aid the children’s home.

“It is such a worthy cause,” she said. “We are so thankful for the generous support off Netcare Alberlito as well as those who supported the initiative,” said Brand.
